No this is not a mistake, I didn’t leave the WordPress intro in here, I am saying hello to the world, as this is officially my first blog post ever!
Yes, you might be thinking ‘so what’, everyone has a blog, well not me, until now I was never brave enough to put myself out there for the world to judge and criticize and I thought what I had to say no one would want to hear anyhow. NOT!
That’s how I used to think and I am not that person anymore. I figured out it’s a whole lot easier to be ME than it is to be someone I ‘think’ everyone wants me to be. That’s tiring and a lot of different people to be! So now my philosophy is, ‘If they don’t like me they will go elsewhere.’ and that’s fine by me, I can’t be everything to all people but I can be someone to some people, my people.
Have you ever felt this way? It can be a scary thing to expose yourself to the world and speak your truth. Well I can tell you, if anyone had to push through that fear it was me so if you are still hiding I encourage you to just Go. For. It!
You won’t die and it’s won’t feel like you ACTUALLY exposed yourself! The haters can hate but there probably won’t be many of those anyhow, it’s all a big tangled story we create in our minds to keep us safe and small….and you may be surprised who resonates with you and the next thing big thing it will lead you to. (that’s another story)
If it helps, take it in small steps. I started by sharing what I was up to and the path I was on with people I knew in my network and when they didn’t give me the ‘Are you serious?’ look and were actually relating to me I began to realize it WAS all in my head! Duh! 😉
So my lesson I am sharing with you is to get out of your comfort zone and do that THING you have been hesitant to do that you know you should do. And let me know how it goes, I love hearing about your experiences!
